Semaj Miller


Self-described as a country boy by the way of Chicago, Semaj Miller is an actor, director, vocalist, and solo performer from Chicago’s South-side neighborhood.  As a kid he wanted to be a lawyer until his father snuck him into a showing of WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT, thus began his life-long love affair with movies and Acting.  He is an alumnus of Syracuse University, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting, as well as The Professional Actor Training Program at the University of Washington, where he completed his MFA. Semaj has appeared onstage at Victory Gardens, Syracuse Stage, Chicago Dramatist, Black Ensemble Theatre and Silk Road Rising; while also appearing in several Industrials and Regional Commercials.  Both on and off stage he’s still that same kid from the South-side of Chicago whose hope remains the same; that hearts can be healed, and communities formed through the power of story-telling.  In addition to performing, Semaj is a wonderful Soul Food chef (in his mind), proud family man, and tennis lover.  He is honored to be a part of the Clear Talent Group family.
